If it makes noise only when you turn or noise going away when you turn then you have a defect ball bearing on one side or both wheels. If thats not the case check your struts, links for loose joints (use hammer tap the suspect position until you hear it clicks)

Replace bearings in front transaxle

If the bearings are worn there will be more to just replacing the bearings. The gear mesh pattern has changed so when you replace just the bearings there's a chance there will be an annoying noise coming from the final drive unit that won't go away. It may be necessary to replace the output gears .

If you are saying the car won't move in drive or reverse, you probably broke one of the joints on the CV axle.

I have a 2001 chrysler minivan with front end noise. I suspect it is in the drive axle but need some help pinning it down. It has 140,000 miles

if its making a clicking noise when you make turns, that's going to be the CV joints,, and you will want them replaced asap, as they can go out anytime and leave you stuck , with that many miles, that would be a good reason for the noise, if they haven't been done as of yet . If your getting them replaced,, have whoever is doing it, check the front end parts for any unusual wear,, also the brakes,

My 1995 Geo Prizm. I hear noise at the left side of the transmission where the drive axle enter the transmission not the usual clicking sound when the drive axle goes bad. The noise show up when I...

I would still suspect the drive axle because it could very well be the inner joint of the axle clicking and not making the accustomed noises related to a drive shaft noise.Thanks Megabuck

When I get up to about 65-70 mph with my 2004 Lincoln Navigator it makes a humming noise... very annoying.. Can anyone help me with what this is and how I can get it fixed?

Unfortunately, this is a somewhat common problem. Ford has issued several Technical Service Bulletins related to rear end noise. Without an extended warranty, this is something you will have to pay for.

Some vehicles may exhibit an axle whine or hum during acceleration, deceleration and/or cruise.
ACTION: An axle repair kit has been developed which incorporates most parts required for a comprehensive axle repair. The kit should be used instead of installing a complete axle assembly to repair an axle whine/hum. Replace Ring and Pinion with Axle Kit and Components.

2002 trail blazer - front left "drive-shaft"? sounds and feels like a bad bearing. What may be the problem/solution?

a few things to check and try to help determine if its bearing . the good ole annoying " growl" that gets progressively worse as speed increases. does the noise change when making turns... try swerving the blazer side to side. if it changes...u have a bad hub assembly . as a rule a drive axle wont do more then vibrate or click on a turn, especially that year with the constant velocity joints in the front. hope this helped you out

Noise w/front left tire when turning slightly right but NOT left

the grinding grating rattling annoying sound is yor axles (velocity joint) it could be a simple thing as the boot rubber poping out and the grease spilled off or the bearing is shelling. In any case have the joint repaired or replaced. After this you will need to align as the changing or removing of the joint messes the alignment up.

Differential making annoying whirring sounds.

this noise is caused by the pinion bearing in most cases, of course without removing the bearing to look for pits in the race it is at best an educated guess.

1. Your tires maybe low on air
2. The tires need balancing
3. Since your care is FWD, make sure you check to see that you don't have any broken boots on your axles. The lack of grease on those joints will cause a lot of noise. Almost like a moaning, it gets pretty annoying

Hope that helps!!
